Every time I watch highlights of Zico, I think about the early 80s and begin to question whether Maradona was indeed better than Zico. I guess Maradona performed better with his national team than Zico did. Zico had a much better all-around game and was a better scorer, passer, free kick taker and was as good a dribbler as Maradona. Well, Maradona was a better dribbler but, not by much. What is fair is that Maradona won the world cup in 1986 and went to the finals again in 1990 and for that, he will always be regarded as a better player. In fact, many people put him up there with Pele. Was Maradona better than Zico?
